Behind the Lens - Vertically Challenged

Photographers shoot fewer vertical than horizontal photographs mainly because of the way cameras are designed. But keeping an eye out for vertical subject matter can lead to creative images.

Portraits are ideal for vertical photographs. They complement the vertical form of both the face and body. The vertical format also enables the photographer to fill the space of their frame where in a horizontal position, empty space might be created to the side of a subject.
